This is an incredibly awesome story! You really should consider becoming a professional writer! Great plot, thrilling and I could really feel and hurt with Dean and John! I loved it!

Wow! Powerful story. Loved the plot and I really enjoyed your journey into Dean and John's relationship; Father and son trying to find their way back to their usual rhythm only to find a new perspective on each other. You have a beautiful and concise way of bringing your vision and emotion to the page. Simply a joy read. You are exceedingly talented! Thank you so much for sharing.

Once again, I have the pleasure of curling up and reading one of your stories. This one is particularly well done, especially with the emphasis on tension between Dean and John. I like how you've characterized them; this might be the best representation of John I've read, showing him as both 'general' and father, and how he fulfills those two roles (for good and for ill). You really have a wonderful gift for digging into a character and pulling out WHO he is (John as father, protector, general; Dean as soldier, brother, and child) relevant to the story at hand. You carry the drama through each chapter, revealing a new level of horror, I think, the horror of watching one's parent or child suffer and being unable to prevent it (and perhaps even being able to accept it). Fantastic work.

OMG... Cole is a crazy ass dude! He reminds me of a character in one of my stories that kidnapped Sam... I love how diabolical and unstable you make Cole... excellent job! My heart is pounding hard over here for Dean!

I have never gotten into stories with John in them, but you are an exception. you write him beautifully, and you capture his relationship with Dean perfectly. My favorite part of this chapter was the end; Dean driving like a maniac to get to the hospital and the cops chasing him. Can't wait to read more!

Okay, I finished everything but the epilogue now. I had to make a diagram to keep all the characters straight, and did help me make better sense of the story. I'm guess the Lawson's must have had something on the Tellers' to get them to help and keep quiet.
It's a pretty sad story.
Love the relationship between John and Dean. Love how they became each other's life line.
Favorite line is when John says, "right is us."
Beautiful story. Love the exploration of their relationship.
Thank you for sharing...I will read the epilogue asap.

I was looking for some family fics featuring Dean and John and stumbled across this story. I had been enjoying it until this chapter. I don't follow Cole's or his father and friends logic in the story. Cole stated that Brooke Marcus was going to leave with his half-brother and he saw how upset that made his father. So he decides to kill his half-brother? How is that going to help the situation? Matt decides to kill Brooke? If he was so upset about her leaving why kill her? It would make more sense if they were afraid of the community finding out about his affair, but even then whey not just let them leave?
Hopefully the other chapters will straightened out this flawed logic of the part of the Lawsons. Also, why would Cole's and Matt's want to help kill Brooke or her son? What had she ever done to any of them? Makes no sense to me.

I totally love your stories. Love your style, your plots... Read two stories now with Abe and really love him for sort of being à surrogate dad to Dean. Thank you so much for writing, i have just started watching season 1 ( and finished, eager now to start with season 2) so there is lots to explore for me. But you are my favorite author already!

I truly loved this story. I had never read John & Dean story because I, too, love the brothers' dynamic. However, you gave me a glimpse into John & Dean's struggle to find that sense of balance, I guess, after Sam's departure. I found the plot and storyline extremely well thought out and just complicated enough to keep it from being relegated with the 'usual' SPN fics. I, too, enjoyed the physical, emotional, and mental anguish you inflicted on John & Dean. Other than being a fan of such 'torture', I could see that it was the pain that defined J & D's relationship in the story's time line. The pain was like a secondary character :) Again, I just can't find the words to praise your work as it so richly deserves. Thank you so much for sharing such amazing work with us mere mortals. I'm truly flattered that you deem us worthy of such a gift. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I must apologize for not giving you the praise you deserve at the end of every chapter. I get so involved in your stories that I just keep on reading and can't stop. However, this chapter I'm reviewing even before I finish reading it. I don't know how you do what you do, but the way you inflict emotional and physical pain on Dean and then manage to convey that to the reader in such poignant and painful clarity is utterly beautiful. Your words cause such a hurt in me :( The way John keeps pushing and pushing both of the boys is frustrating but understood at the same time. Dean and Sam's reaction to that insistence to hunt and live such dangerous lives sets them apart as individuals, where one couldn't help but leave, the other couldn't help but stay. Dean living and containing such pain day in and day out, hurt because John won't stop punishing both of them due to Sam leaving, and hurt because his little brother has pushed him out of his life. It's all so tragic! Anyway, I don't have the words to do your work justice. Just know that you have in me the most dedicated life-long SPN fic fan EVER! You truly are amazing!
